Basically, Italy need a win to advance, and Spain and Croatia will advance with a win over the other, or both if Italy don't win, or there's a 2-2 or higher draw. If Italy win, as expected, they will advance with the Spain - Croatia winner, or Spain with a 0-0 draw in the other game, or a 1-1 if Italy: Win 1-0, 2-0, or any other crazy permutation above that.
